Windows into an epidemic

A United Nations study confirmed that AIDS-related deaths have been decreasing in most of the world since 2001, thanks in part to the growing use of antiretroviral therapies in developing countries. Although the overall incidence of new HIV infections is down as well, it has jumped more than 25 percent in a few countries since 2001. In Eastern and Central Europe, the number of people with HIV has tripled since 2000, and the study found that most of those new infections were acquired through drug use.
